Publisher's Summary

Heaven to Betsy

When a dead body swan-dives from a balcony into the pool at a wedding, gossip comes to a halt about disgraced paralegal and former rodeo queen Emily - whose husband left her for a woman who turns out to be a man. Enter Jack, a secretive attorney and sexy mix of cowboy and Indian. She refuses to work for him, until she learns about the disappearance of the six-year old daughter of his notorious client Sofia. Emily launches a desperate search for her. Bodies pile up in her wake across Texas and New Mexico as the walls around her own secrets begin to crumble.

Earth to Emily

Emily only wants two little things. The first is to adopt Betsy - the girl who has stolen her heart but could be deported to Mexico at any time. The other is a second chance with her boss, Jack, a smolderingly hot and mysterious criminal defense attorney. But before Emily can dare to hope for either (or both), the obstacles between them mount: two runaway teenagers, an aging exotic dancer, and a dead trucker.

Hell to Pay

Emily finally has her life back on track. Then client Phil Escalante's childhood buddy Dennis drops dead, face first into a penis cake at the adult novelty store. The cops charge Phil with murder right on the heels of his trial for burglarizing the Mighty is His Word Church. Emily's nemesis ADA Melinda Stafford claims a witness overheard Phil fighting with Dennis over a woman. Before he can mount a defense, Phil falls into a diabetic coma. Meanwhile Betsy’s ultra-religious foster parents apply to adopt her, and Jack starts acting weird and evasive. Emily feels like a calf out of a chute, pulled between the ropes of the header and the heeler, as she fights to help Phil without losing Betsy and Jack.

If you enjoy vulgar bar trash talk read this

Rude, crude, explicit, with gutter thinking and language. Could not read and did not enjoy.

Romance, mystery, suspense and humor oh my!

Loved it! Emily is quite the character that seems to find trouble. As a former Amarilloion I couldn't help but laugh at all the references to Amarillo that Pamela used in these books! I really look forward to starting the next book in the series that just came out.

Great story

I have listen to over 20 books and probably haven't written 5 or 6 reviews a book has to really hold my interest for me to write one. This series held my attention from beginning to end I found it hard to put down. The story has everything a good book needs its funny, sad,serious and heart warming it takes you to the edge many times them pulls you back. I well also look for books narrated by this person in the future as she did a great job. I get books to listen to while I am driving I found myself getting out of my truck putting on my ear phones so I could continue to listen because it's har to find a good break point.

Sad when it ended

This stows well written and performed. It truly drew the listener into the story. I found myself working out longer because it was at such a point I didn’t want to pause it. I highly recommend this for both humor and suspense.

Fabulous texas drawl

Although the accent at first annoyed me by turning speed to 1.2 I got with Emily and her adventures - she made several work drives easy as pie (pronounced paaa😀)
